Who Should attend manual handling training?
Any persons who are required to manually handle any object from building materials on site, to reams of paper in an office environment.

Manual handling risks can be found across all kinds of workplaces – on farms and building sites, in factories, offices, warehouses, hospitals and while making deliveries. Heavy manual labour, repetitive handling, awkward postures and previous or existing injuries or conditions are all risk factors for developing musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs). Work may also make worse an injury which was not caused at work, such as a sports injury. There is more advice on MSDs on the HSE website
